Trinity Circle Horses Healing Hearts Program Helps Trauma Sufferers Heal

Updated:
Coping with emotional trauma is a challenge for many.  But an organization Newton County Missouri is hoping to raise money to continue to help heal those suffering with help from the wild.


Even on a rainy day, the wide open provides a sense of serenity.


"Relax. Relax and let them do what they do best. And so that's what you do. So I relaxed and I felt so comfortable it was amazing." says Candy Wilson, a rider of the Mustangs.


It's a feeling many hope to regain. 

Kristal, candy and dawn have all suffered emotional trauma in their life, and their way of healing...is with these wild horses.


"It's not teaching you to cope, it's teaching you how to handle yourself." owner, Dawn Newlan explains.


Her Office Manager Kristal Parnell explains "When you can go from being in a position in your life where you feel like a failure and its worthless, and you have one of these guys put their complete trust in you, then maybe you realize then you're worthy of peoples love and everything too."


Dawn Newlan has run Trinity Circle's Horses Healing Hearts Program for the past four years using trained wild mustang horses to bring a sense of trust back to those who suffer from emotional trauma.


"When you try and handle a horse you have to learn to stay calm. And when you're on an emotional roller coaster, you're crying, some days you're angry, some days there is rage, some days you're just lost. The horse can't be handled when you're all over the place. So you have to learn to stay on an even keel, and not scare them." Newlan says.


The cost of funding the program adds up to around $15,000 dollars a year, but they hope to expand to help more people.


"With all of the trauma we had - the tornadoes have just wreaked havoc, and we've had so many military...They need us, and we want to help them." Newlan says.


A poker run will be held in the Neosho Square on September 6th to help raise funds for the program.

They hope to raise $200,000 total to fund all costs - including fencing, equipment, feed, and additional maintenance.
